It seems to have been maintained perfectly, with even the transmission being opened up to replace the syncros. If it was near me for $3k I'd sure have a look at it anyways. I borrowed the same car with the automatic and they are a decent car to commute in for sure.

Nice car. Seems problem free given the mileage. My ‘rents used to have a Silver 2006. Bought it without knowing the color since it was the first "new Jetta" (I think that was VW's sales line?) at the dealer and dad needed a 47 mpg car. I love the way they sound.

Looks in great shape. If i was in the market, i would pay $3K for it. At least i know it wasn't just an appliance to you and was well cared for.

Blue book is $4000, people want these since they are no longer sold. You are clueless. Diesel miles are not equal to petrol miles.

Really? The CV joints/ball joints, etc., arre not going to wear like a gas motor? Other suspension components?

wonder if he sold it.

Don't know why I'm not getting email notification of replies, but I drove it 1,000 miles down to my place in Florida back in July. 15 hours in 95 degree heat and getting 65 mpg. Will fly down next month and drive it back home and resume selling.

Learn how to turn a wrench so easy repairs don’t scare you or just move along when you have nothing to contribute.

There is nothing easy about replacing some suspension components. Maybe to you...generally it's not easy. I see replacing parts must be something you have the time for---based on the miles you have on your vehicles.

Personally spending evenings or Saturdays wrenching is not something I find enjoyable. I'd rather be in my travel trailer somewhere or interacting with my grandkids.

Here are milne
2018 SIlverado Crew Cab 4WD-LTZ-31,000 miles
2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL Limited AWD 38,000 miles

No wrenching needed.

Point being you were being a man unit to the OP.

No time to wrench, but plenty of time to troll. Oh, okay.

Cool. Realistically this car is like a Mickey Mantle rookie card; A lot of people aren't going to buy one if it is priced @ 50K, except you don't need to convince everyone, you just need to convince one.

Give Atkovi some credit. I was one who questioned some of his deals early on, but he's been buying and flipping cars for awhile now. He takes the time to post his vehicles on BITOG with decent descriptions and nice photos. He wouldn't keep doing this if he was losing money. So those who say things like "it's way overpriced" or "that's only a $300 car" are off base. Every vehicle has a price for the right buyer.

Keep up the good work, Atkovi.
